Interventions for the treatment of painful bladder syndrome (i.e. interstitial cystitis)

Summary

This NIHR HTA-funded project will assess the current evidence for the clinical effectiveness of interventions for the treatment of painful bladder syndrome (i.e. interstitial cystitis) in adults. There is currently no definitive cure for painful bladder syndrome and treatment options, which aim to alleviate symptoms, include pharmacological therapy (intravesical and oral), surgery, supportive/conservative therapies, and lifestyle recommendations. The results of this project will contribute to the development of clinical guidelines and help to identify future primary research opportunities for the NHS.
